Two Fractions Claim America
The Americas were claimed by two forces, the Christian force and the Masonic force. Both profess a very different god.
There is a systematic effort to remove all reference to God (meaning the Judeo-Christian God) from all public life in the US. We can see this eradication in the public school system, in documents, buildings, even the dollar bill, etc. Yet we must observe this move as a direct attack against the True Biblical God. Men declaring war against God.
If you remove the True God from an area then you are left with Anti-God or Anti-Christ.
This effort of removing God, places one outside of God’s protection, covering and grace.
It was common to have crosses in classrooms and many other public places. But in this modern enlighten and electronically advance times people don’t hold the same reverence as years ago.
Sometimes the cross is just there… an artifact making a statement “this is where we come from… our heritage”. Seemingly unnoticed, but by its very presence it makes the area a Christian place. It claims this place for it.
Women might wear a chain with a cross but not wear it with devotion. Just a piece of decorative jewelry but yet the very fact of wearing it is an acknowledgment of the reality of Christ, regardless of ones personal belief. Mind you, the opponents have their symbols also.
The moment people decide to rid themselves of any reference to God, they are rejecting the True God and find themselves siding with the god who is against the True God, that is Satan. Secularism, by its very nature, is a rejection of the Biblical God.
Marriage between Powers
Throughout history every culture has had a marriage between the spiritual powers and the ruling powers of state.
Generally, the spiritual powers followed the state. Because man representing the spiritual powers feared that the state would kill them.
Among the Hebrews we see the killing of all the prophets of God by the ruling state, at different times of history.
In all the civilizations, the power of the state has used the spiritual powers to their advantage. They surrounded themselves with seers, consult priest and prophets. Of course many of them would agree with the King or President.
In our time, we see the funeral service of Ted Kennedy surrounded by many church men, nothing new. State rulers still have cardinals, bishops around them, and even monasteries at times.
Two powers—the state and spiritual powers–hand in hand equal to each other but sometimes the marriage is not a happy one like during Henry VIII, Henry IV.
God puts the president and the government in power so you must obey.” Romans 13
Romans 13 is a scripture passage that has been used many times by the state to its advantage.
But if they are correct then does it mean God put Hitler in power?
Hitler was a legitimate ruler who was voted in power. Then was It God who put such evil power in Germany? That is of course nonsense. No, God didn’t put Hitler in power, human beings did.
Next before Hitler, Lenin took over the government and became a ruler. So does it mean God put him there? Should the Russian people have accepted the tyranny of such a government?
These same arguments can be said about Stalin, Mussolini, Mao Tse-Tung, Adi Amin, Pol Pot of the Khmer Rouge, the Armenian and Rwanda genocide brought in by their own government. If we have to buy this literal biblical interpretation that some clergyman states that “God puts president and government in power so I (we) must obey”. If this scriptural interpretation is true then it looks like God lost control over His universe, which of course is nonsense. Yes, scripture is there, but it needs to be interpreted correctly.
The Reality is that God’s word is being distorted. It is being misused. There are many areas in scripture where God stands against rulers and commanded the prophets to speak against the rulers and governments. That is true in Egypt in the time of Moses. Equally true in historical period of the Northern and Southern Kingdom.
Many prophets sent by God to these governments and rulers and the message was that these rulers and governments were not ruling in accord to God’s will and very importantly that these rulers or governments were not serving the people. They were not serving the people in their kingdom. They were in fact serving themselves.
See God’s Word to Isaiah regarding injustice, the poverty brought in by the government, the inequity. See Jesus who healed the sick and forgave sins on the sabbath. His action came against the authority. It stands that Jesus was arrested because He was not subservient to the government power of his country.
Finally Peter was commanded by the authority not to speak Jesus’ name yet see Peter’s response Act 4:18. Scripture tells us that this world is under the dominion of the AntiGod.
In conclusion it is true what scripture says, that God put a system of authority in civilization. One needs order. God system of authority is to serve His people but scripture does not say that God pointed a finger on a single men or women and called them forth to government except the case of Moses and David.
Scripture does not say that the people of God is to serve individual governments. (And that serving the government you are serving God.) Those loud mouth should read Ephesian. See what God said about wife and husband. To those who abide by the thinking “Ask not what your country can do for you, but ask what you can do for your country” follow a subversion of scripture.
We need to be responsible for our action. We need to repent for the submission when we allow evil to take place.
